Welcome back guys! We return with another installment of Anime REvisited with our current pick known as Hyakka Ryoran: Samurai Girls! Last time was the introduction to a majority of the main cast, so without further delay, here’s the breakdown of episode number two!
Picking up where the last episode left off, Muneakira was looking at the master samurai known as Jubei Yagyu. During this time Hanzo was in quick pursuit of him as well as Matabei and Sanada; but Jubei intercepted the girl and thus a battle quickly took place. After doing a few Matrix moves and dodging all of Hanzo’s attacks, Jubei took the fight to her after toying with her a bit. (Not to mention that during the fight she had a power level of 5 million; which probably meant she could kick second and third form Frieza’s ass, just saiyan.) It wasn’t long before Jubei had Hanzo right where she wanted her, as she unsheathed her blades from her Daisho set, and prepared to strike. Right now things aren’t lookin’ good for Hanzo, but Muneakira’s voice somehow cracked through to Jubei; as you see her ‘Inner Moka’ disappear in an explosion of dark energy and light and reverting to her former self…naked…because fanservice.
After the whole situation Muneakira along with the other two girls were back inside the dojo, with Hanzo and her boss Sen Tokugawa; who just so happens to be Muneakira’s childhood friend – his Tsundere, jealous-around-other-women, bossy-as-hell, spoiled-as-shite childhood friend. (There’s always one in 90% of the anime you watch.) Fickle reunion aside Hanzo instructs Muneakira, Matabei, and Sanada not to even think about leaving the premises or there will be dire ‘consequences’ as she put it.
Near the end of the episode Sanada and Hanzo wanted to check Jubei’s body to see if there was some kind of manifestation of some kind that caused her to transform into a master samurai. What happened to be a bit of a struggle actually sounded like something dirty to Muneakira; as all matter of imagery crept into his mind while trying to exercise it out.
This of course led Jubei to dash off away from the other girls not knowing that Muneakira was right on the other side of the door. She tripped on his coat and fell flat on top of him as he saw what the others were looking for; the mark of a master samurai right between her breasts.
The second episode gave us a taste of what ‘Inner Jubei’ can do during battle, as this may not be the last time we see her throughout the series. Usually after the second episode all of the major main character introductions are done; with the side and supporting characters coming later on in the series. Right now it appears that Sen’s older brother may be the main antagonist, but the truth behind that assumption has yet to be revealed.
Well, that wraps up another review on our Anime REvisited pick, but as always we’ve got more reviews coming your way; among other surprises that we can’t share with you just yet! Stay tuned! 🙂
